Consultation Response to Safeguarding Children
Posted 2 February 2010
We have responded to the Government's consultation on guidance for Local Safeguarding Children Boards, which have responsibility in each borough for keeping children safe from harm. In particularly, we are encouraging the Boards to recruit members from minority and marginalised communities, and to ensure there are mechanisms in place to consult with all parts of the community. The response mainly draws on our experience of the Safeguarding Children's Rights special initiative, but also from our work on Female Genital Mutilation, trafficking and domestic violence. The response is available to download below.
